MS Project 2013 - Custom Field Formula Syntax Error

MS Project 2013 - Custom Field Formula Syntax Error

MS Project 2013 - Custom Field Formula Syntax Error

(OP)
I'm creating a report view in MS Project 2013 Standard, which is intended to show tasks due in the next two weeks.
I got the formula from here:
http://www.cambermast.com/agile-ideas-create-kanba...

(([Start]>DateAdd(“d”,-14,now()) Or [Finish]>DateAdd(“d”,-14,now())) And ([Start]<DateAdd(“d”,14,now()) Or [Finish]<DateAdd(“d”,14,now()))) Or ([Finish]<DateAdd(“d”,14,now()) And [% Complete]<100)

I get a 'Syntax error' - "Formula contains a syntax error or an unknown field or function'
Clicking 'OK' to highlight the error, highlights "d" in the first DateAdd function as the issue.

Any suggestions on cause and solution?

Hi Paulmnz

Can you explain what the goal is of the code? I think I understand what you are going for, but I want to make sure that we are on the same page.

Thanks,

Mike

I have no MS Project, but at a first look the quotation marks in the formula seem to be non-standard, try to replace them by regular ".
